Absolute value of a real number
Denoted by a, represents the number a or the positive number a if a < 0.

Bounded
A function is bounded if there are numbers b and B such that b ? ƒ(x) ? B for all x in the domain of f.

Cosine
The function y = cos x

Demand curve
p = g(x), where x represents demand and p represents price

Directed line segment
See Arrow.

Direction angle of a vector
The angle that the vector makes with the positive xaxis

Fundamental
Theorem of Algebra A polynomial function of degree has n complex zeros (counting multiplicity).

Imaginary axis
See Complex plane.

Independent variable
Variable representing the domain value of a function (usually x).

Instantaneous rate of change
See Derivative at x = a.

Linear factorization theorem
A polynomial ƒ(x) of degree n > 0 has the factorization ƒ(x) = a(x1  z1) 1x  i z 22 Á 1x  z n where the z1 are the zeros of ƒ

Lower bound of f
Any number b for which b < ƒ(x) for all x in the domain of ƒ

Mapping
A function viewed as a mapping of the elements of the domain onto the elements of the range

Midpoint (in a coordinate plane)
For the line segment with endpoints (a,b) and (c,d), (aa + c2 ,b + d2)

Monomial function
A polynomial with exactly one term.

Parameter interval
See Parametric equations.

Quartic function
A degree 4 polynomial function.

Reflection across the xaxis
x, y and (x,y) are reflections of each other across the xaxis.

Solution of an equation or inequality
A value of the variable (or values of the variables) for which the equation or inequality is true

Vertical translation
A shift of a graph up or down.
